So, you’re moving home and you’ve just heard about transit protection. If you’re wondering if you need transit protection and why you need it, you’ve come to the right place.

Here at Crown Relocations, we prioritise the security of your belongings and therefore prioritise protection. Many people, especially first-time movers can be unaware of the risks that follow not having transit protection in place and therefore can be stuck when items are lost or damaged.

What is transit protection?

When moving from point A to point B, whether it be only a kilometre to the next suburb tor a thousand kilometres overseas, there’s always risk of your belongings being damaged or broken.

In short, transit protection either in the form of an extended warranty or transit protection covers any accidental damage or loss of your belongings if you are using a professional removalist. A common misunderstanding is that this transit protection is automatically applied when you hire a professional removalist to move belongings, but this isn’t always the case. Some people may also assume that their belongings are covered by their home and contents insurance policy, which also usually isn’t the case when the belongings are in transit. Without transit protection, you may be left responsible for any loss or damage to your belongings without any compensation.

Why is it important to have transit protection?

The last thing you want to stress about, is having to replace a broken or damaged item after a move! Transit protection provides peace of mind and a sense of security making your move stress-free. Even if a company has years of experience in removals, accidents do still happen so it is a responsibility when moving to double check you have appropriate transit protection cover that will protect your items.

Whether you’re moving for work or for pleasure, it’s important to ensure it is a positive experience and you begin life in your new home on a positive note.
